Product Details

Praise

“Dickson loads every page with facts, anecdotes and telling details about life under Prohibition.”
The Washington Post

“Rollicking history…Whoever you gift with this book will thank you doubly for Mr. Dickson has dredged up the recipes for the most fashionable of the concoctions of the day.”
The Washington Times

“An engaging discourse on classic cocktails replete with trivia, recipes, a list of -alcohol-related slang of the period and a fair amount of Golden-Era literary and celebrity gossip.” Bookpage

Praise for Drunk

 
“Spanning centuries, it is both a celebration of drinking and a chronicle of the laments that come after having drunk too much.”
New York Daily News
 
“A splendid new book.”
—Ben Schott, The New York Times
 
“Where else could we learn that 30 years after the term plastered entered the drunk lexicon, the Arizona Lath and Plaster Institute would protest the use of the term?”
—Carolyn Kellogg, Los Angeles Times
 
Reading through these definitions, accompanied by Brian Rea’s charming drawings, is so immensely pleasurable that it’s intoxicating. Just like the title suggests.”
Time Out Chicago
